Working with modurit:
Keeping hands clean is important when working with modurit, because it absorbs dust and dirt easily.
Very fresh and soft modurit is sticky and hard to work with. We recommend to cut modurit into 1cm slices and let it dry at room teperature for several days. In case of very soft modelling clay the drying procedure may take longer, even more weeks. For the status of our modurit in stock, please see the table below.
Modurit is best suitable for modelling when the 1cm slices can break. If they still bendable, they will be sticky.
If the work with fresh modurit is urgent, you can use geasy cream or oil for your hands or work with wet hands / in water. But we recommend to have patience.
Warning: Do not dry modurit on a hot location, not in the sun, do not put it on radiator.
Modurit cures when heated and does not significantly shrink or change shape during the process. We recommend
- cooking about 15min per 1cm of thickness, for thicker layer more;
- baking in electric oven at 100 ° -110 ° C.
In order to maintain the whiteness of modurit, keep the temperature at 100 °C, at higher temperatures modurit turns brown. Be careful not to burn the clay at too high temperatures.
Warning: Do not use microwave ovens to harden the clay!
Painting the surface:
- oil paints, acrylic paints, Centropen Decoder markers are most suitable.
Children can use other markers, but the color won't be saturated enough. Tempera paints can be also used, but they not light stable.
Modurit, unlike most similar modelling clays on the market, owns safety certifikate as a toy intended for children 3 years older and meet the standard EN 71-3: 2013 Safety of toys: Migration of certain elements.
Heat-treatable modelling materials do not require safety certificates as a toy intended for children. Modurit has undergone the certification procedure voluntary.
Modurit is based on the polymer polyvinyl chloride, but has not contained any phthalates since 2000. All modelling clay contain a basis of PVC resin and a liquid plasticizer, giving this material improved flexibility and durability and making it a plastisol.
Modurit is not flammable.
Quality of modurit is demonstrated by the fact that it was ranked among the top three products at the fair in Norimberg in 2014.
All colors are produced by the same procedure and colored with non toxic paint.
